Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Peter P. Cohron. I am a pharmacist and an attorney. I practice pharmacy for one of the Big Three chains currently and have a private law practice I run out of my home. Though I have done legal work in many areas, most of my time is spent on pharmacy law, most but not all of this on Kentucky pharmacy law as I live and practice in the Bluegrass State.
I taught pharmacy and health law part time at a Top Ten college of pharmacy for nine years. Since 1998, I have presented Kentucky pharmacy law reviews for new pharmacy school graduates, with a pass rate for attendees of 98%.
For ten years, I did an e-mail newsletter titled “Pharmacy Law Notes” before it was considered by the bar association as advertising. PLN had, if I may brag, a good following until I had to cancel it. Well, the same bar association has now decided that blogs are not advertising. I am not advertising for clients here–I am seeking to provide a means for pharmacists and other interested persons to stay abreast of those legal issues that cross my path (though were my entrancing, educational and entertaining posts a catalyst to you hiring me, that is fine).
So, the posts that follow will contain the following: descriptions of current pharmacy related legal cases; my own experiences with clients (who permit me to tell their stories); trends in the law; Board opinions, decisions, etc.; and my editorial opinion on all the above.
And I have already been asked: “Can we ask questions?” Yes, I answer questions from pharmacists every day. You can use this site or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. “Do you charge for answering questions?” Most often, I do not. But if it requires time and effort, I probably will state a fee.
This is a site still under construction, and a big part of that will be your feedback on the posts. I welcome thoughts, comments, stories, and constructive criticism (and I do mean “constructive.” Please do not be like the person on Goodreads who took my review of “HRC” and responded with a derogatory political diatribe.).
How often will I post? When I did PLN, I averaged 8-12 posts a year. I hope to do better than that but we’ll have to see.
Vineet, thanks for your help in setting this up. Everyone else, Vineet did a lot to get this going. That I am starting with the site still under construction (design wise) is a reflection on me, not him.
